But every profession has its own share of problems and freelancing is not an exception. One of the biggest and most consistent problems for freelancers is accepting payments.

Freelancers have irregular payment cycles and based on the inflow of the work it is understandable. Still, most of the time, freelancers face late payment ever after the work or project is submitted.

Freelancers also often struggle with professional invoicing, payment reconciliation, and payment mode availability.

One solution for this can be digital payments. Now, the digital evolution, smartphone penetration, widespread internet services, and the limits set by the pandemic have made it inevitable to accept online payments.
